BritishPandaChick :  I completely agree with you and I think its quite unfair that they expect you to move your date around them watching college football. I mean this is something that’s inevitably going to be irrelevant to them in years to come (in comparison to your wedding day). But I guess some people are just different. Fact is, you’re never going to choose a date/day that is going to make EVERYONE happy, just do what you think is right for you two as a couple and whoever doesn’t fall in line can then fall away. If anyone misses your wedding day to watch college football, they’re going to feel like big asses in years to come so its not for you to worry about. 

Where I’m from, the date I chose is a public holiday, its a Friday and the following Tuesday is also another public holiday. I chose the date because I thought that its nice that our anni will always be on a public holiday which means that we will always get to spend time together. Also, his gran is a seventh day adventist, so Friday works for her because she goes to church on a Saturday. My family is also religious so I thought by having a Friday wedding, they would have Saturday to rest and recover before going to church on Sunday. And I’ve just started a new teaching job, because Tuesday is another public holiday, Monday is given as a school holiday, and I’m not sure if I will be given the week off because we will have just gotten back from the easter break and so having our wedding on the Friday means that we have Saturday through to Tuesday to go away for a honeymoon. But still I have family members asking why am I having a Friday wedding, I mean come on, its a public holiday and it’s like any other weekend in retrospect where you work on a Friday and can go to a wedding on a Saturday.

I don’t give a damn anymore. Like I advised you, I don’t tell anyone my plans (not even family at times) because everyone feels like they have a right to give you a 2 cent opinion.
